Andyg687 bad sales experience.

#1 Post by smellmyflower » Thu Jul 04, 2019 3:58 pm

I'm disappointed to be writing this & I'm hoping that Andy will put his side of the story across & explain that I'm mistaken.

I mentioned to my brother about the recent mfr that was up for sale on here.

https://www.rapid7ownersclub.com/viewto ... 39&t=24855

As I'd purchased a barrel from Andy a couple of weeks before & he was good to deal with, I assumed that I could reccomend him.
I'm writing this to help warn others as my brother isn't on here. This would have been his 1st rapid.

As I said in the other thread, my brother agreed a sale & collection day with Andyg687.
He mentioned in a further chat that he'd received other interest in the gun, and we can only assume it was a higher offer.
Now neither my Brother or I would have been cross about him cancelling the sale & going with a higher bid. It was very well priced for everything that was with it.

But he didn't. He let my brother drive all the way to Barnsley after a long day's work.
My brother was there at the agreed time, but Andyg687 bravely wasn't. He let his heavily pregnant Mrs deal with the situation instead.
It looks like he's blocked both my brother and I, both on iMessenger & what's app. However his phone works, as his Mrs phoned him while my brother was at his house & he answered her call.
Our messages are still undelivered.

I know it's Andyg687's decision to sell to whoever he wants, but he then needs to cancel the other arrangements.
It's not fair to let someone do a round trip from Stoke on Trent to Barnsley for no reason. He could have even said "I've decided to keep it" if he was embarrassed.
But no, he'd rather someone waste 4 hours of someone else's life.

Andyg687 has been on since I posted in the sales thread. No response.

I look forward to an alternative version of events that show some depth of character, until then I'll be giving anything he has for sale a miss.

Phil, having met you and spent time with you, I can honestly say that you really don't deserve to be messed about, at least not like that, a simple phone call would have been nice and easy.
Andy, I know you're probably busy with the new baby, but come on, at least reply!

Thanks Paul, I appreciate it.

I imagine Andy is pretty busy now, this took place a last Friday.

Same here Kev, we had a good chat over the phone when I purchased the. 20 barrel & he seemed really decent.
The barrel was exactly as described & further text chats about various things gave me the same opinion as you.

I hope you're right Al. Hopefully it's just miscommunication
